Helpline opens for nurses under stress from fighting COVID-19

Nurse2Nurse helpline: 1-844-687-7301

Health care workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 fight are battling fatigue and other stresses, so Rutgers has launched a new mental health helpline for thousands of nurses in our state. The confidential peer-support service connects them with retired or former nurses who are trained in mental health and are able to lend an ear and provide help. The helpline is called Nurse2Nurse.

We talked with Barbara Brilliantine, a nurse and helpline counselor.
